THE WASHINGTON EXAMINER is a new free weekly magazine focused on national politics and policy, investigative reporting and commentary. It’s a reincarnation of the newspaper with the same title, which ceased publication this week.
However, the new magazine will not cover local news.
“We have made a name for ourselves with our newspaper and expect to make an even bigger impact with an expanded staff focusing on national issues,” said Editor Stephen G. Smith. However, The Denver Business Journal reported that The Washington Examiner has also laid off 70% of its staff.
A memo published by the Washington City Paper describes the new magazine as “a center-right version of political publications like The Hill.”
The magazine will be aimed at leaders in government, politics, advocacy groups, public affairs and academia. It’ll have a circulation of 42,000 and be distributed in locations in the Washington D.C. region. 12,000 will be shipped to the nation’s 50 statehouses.
Denver-based Clarity Media Group owns The Washington Examiner. Smith can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
